Serie A's biggest derby, Milan vs. Inter, delivers a classic. PLUS: Messi's latest magic trick for Barcelona

The Milan derby and Lionel Messi's performance at Betis raised overall what was a relatively humdrum weekend. It may be just an impression, but derbies tend to either be defined by fear and tension, or they break out into end-to-end brawls.

The 223rd Derby Della Madonnina was the latter, and if you missed it, you missed a classic.

Inter in derby heaven as Milan fail to deal with threat of Vecino and Martinez

As kick-off approached in the Derby della Madonnina, Milan's Ultras unfurled a tifo depicting Hell Boy bringing his fist down on a pile of skulls through which an Inter scarf was laced.

The roles are now reversed. Milan are on the march and have overtaken an Inter side that's on the slide. There has been a remarkable nine-point...

Arrivals of Piatek, Paqueta have Gattuso, Milan in position to return to the Champions League

Last Friday afternoon, Gennaro Gattuso walked into his pre-match news conference and did what he always does. He walked down the aisle to his desk, exchanging a few words and shaking some hands only to notice that a couple of the reporters were not in their usual places. To great curiosity and no little amusement, Gattuso politely asked if they would move. Sitting to his left wouldn't do. Not when the recent uptick in Milan's results has coincided with this particular pair of journalists questioning...
